Yamano Gakki decided to go with a different name for this expanded line of guitars, that were designed in the exact form of the most valuable and sought-afterclassic Gibson guitars.
It was decided upon to use "Orville" as the new brand name, dedicating the brand to the founding father.
No letter beginning the serial number = Fuji Gen Factory-built.*Y = Production Year*M = Production Month*P = Production Number In 1998, Gibson and Yamano Gakki decided to end the production of the Orville models to focus on the expanded production of the Epiphone line, which wasdesigned both for the Japan domestic market as well as exported models destined for far-off lands.
The domestic models had the Gibson open-book headstockdesign while the exported models were given the usual Epiphone design.
You can research and find in much greater detail, information about the histories of these brands on other websites, but for me, the important part is to judgean instrument upon its merits.
This is the most useful part for people looking at buying an Orville, Orville by Gibson or Epiphone guitar.
It wasn't until 1986 when Yamano Gakki took over the distribution of Gibson (and Korean-made Epiphone) guitars in Japan, and later in 1988, decidedto expand their lineup of guitar models, that things really got rolling for the Orville and Orville by Gibson brands.

Truth be told I still struggle to tell the difference between Chinese faces and Japanese faces. Were you able to see any subtle differences in Asian facial features in this quiz?
Other than the difference in headstock logo and pickups, there are noother hidden or outward differences that I am aware of.
Many collector friends have said that they think the Orville by Gibsons are overall better guitars andwhile this may be so, many collectors have disagreed with this notion.
